Series of the Week: The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids by Debbie Dadey, Marcia Thornton Jones, John Steven Gurney (Illustrator)

This is a series that always sticks out to me because of the covers and the various “monsters” they used in the books.

It’s…

The Adventures of The Bailey School Kids

From ghouls to vikings the Bailey School Kids encountered a lot in their grade school careers and honestly I am beyond envious.

Kids are bad. There, I’ve said it. We can move on with our lives. But have you encountered a set a kids so bad that all their previous teachers have had to quit their jobs?

No???

Well, I present to you the 3rd grade class at Bailey Elementary. This is actually sounding kind of Battle Royaleish…which I will definitely be reviewing soon btw

Anyway, things change when the strange Mrs. Jeepers becomes their new teacher. Mrs. Jeepers hails from the far away country of the Translyvanian Alps and she holds special powers that know just how to deal with mischief makers and trouble makers. Yes, her methods aren’t…exactly in line with uhh, ethics exactly but she’s getting the job done and then some.

This series isn’t exactly scary or creepy but it’s fun and it introduces kids to classic monsters such as vampires, Frankenstein, witches, mummies, ghouls, and mores. I guess in its own zany way it also teaches them how to behave? It’s a funny series and definitely made me want to read more which is what books like this definitely strive to do.

Kids at this age do not want to read. They don’t find it fun and would rather play games whether it be dolls or cars or on their computer, reading just isn’t on the top of the list. I hated reading lol. I had to find books that truly interested me and what made me want to read and kept my interest was horror. I loved and LOVED to be scared. Now, I love all types of genres but still…horror…is my main bae. As you all know. Lmao.

Have any of you read this series? What was your favorite out of it all? I’m looking at them all on Goodreads and there are soooo many!
